happy 51st anniversary

This past Thursday my parents celebrated 51 years of marriage.  I asked them to give us a glimpse of what it takes to have a great marriage.  Here are their thoughts:

MY MOM --- "The secret is making a committment and standing by it - it also helps to have a husband who is loving, caring, honest, dependable, a wonderful father, always thinks of you first and continues to love you even when you are not deserving and you are unloveable. 51 years ago I made the best decision of my life and married your Father. And at 18 years of age I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing. But I have been so blessed ! The greatest thing to come out of this marriage are 3 sons who all have the best of their Father in them. Their earthly Father and their heavenly Father."

MY DAD --- "Your Mom said it best---- making a committment and sticking to it, for better or worse. None of us are really perfect, but with the grace of God we make the best of all situations and think of others first. And yes, having great kids does help--- that would be #3 on a scale of 1 to 10. Love you---" 

There you have WISE WORDS for some of my favorite people.  My parents have blessed my family so many, MANY times.  Their marriage is one that I can say WOW and praise the Lord over.  Therefore, I wanted to share just a little with you all.

My parents are awesome!
